HISTORICAL NOTE 

Cumberland University has had a long and enviable history, 
having entered upon its career in 1842, Since that time it has sent 
out twenty-three college presidents, sixty college professors, sixty 
congressmen, seven United States senators, fifteen governors of 
states, two justices of the United States Supreme Court, one hun- 
dred and sixty district judges, twelve Federal judges, and forty 
justices of State Supreme Courts. Twelve hundred ministers have 
been numbered among its former students. Its eighteen thousand 
matriculates and six thousand graduates have come from all parts 
of the South and Southwest, in fact twenty-two states of the 
Union and seven foreign countries have been represented. 

The Law School was created as a department of Cumberland 
University on the ninth day of January, 1847, or, to be more accu- 
rate, on that day the Board of Trustees took the first step, by resolu- 
tion, looking to the establishment of same. At various subsequent 
sittings of the board the plan of organization was perfected, and in 
the month of October, 1847, the first term opened, with one pro- 
fessor and seven students present. Judge Abram Caruthers was 
the professor. He resigned his seat upon the bench of the State to 
accept the position. His name has passed into history as one of the 
ablest judges who ever presided in the courts of the State. His 
opening address attracted wide attention, and was copied and com- 
mented upon in many of the legal publications throughout the 
country. He assailed and utterly discredited the old system of teach- 
ing by lectures, and insisted that the science of law should be taught 
like any other science — like mathematics, like chemistry. 

The school was at once a success. Judge N. Green, Senior, then 
one of the Supreme Judges of the State, was called to assist Judge 
Caruthers in the conduct of the school in 1852. He resigned his 
position on the bench to do so. Shortly thereafter, X. Green, 
Junior, was elected a professor, the prosperity of the school requiring 
the services of three instructors. These three gentlemen continued 
as the I'aculty until the beginning of the Civil War in 1S61. At that 
time there were one hundred and eighty law students in attendance. 
Judge Abram Caruthers died during the war. Judge N. Green, 
Senior, survived tlie war and assisted his son, N. (ireen, Junior, in 
the revival of the school, but died, at an advanced age and full of 
honors, in 1866. He was succeeded that year by the I Ion. Henry 
Cooper, and two years thereafter, Judge Cooper having resigned, 
Judge Robert L. Caruthers, who was for many years on the Supreme 



4 Cumberland University Law School 

Bench of the State, was elected to fill the vacancy. He resigned in 
1881 because of advancing years and feeble health, and Dr. Andrew 
B. Martin succeeded him, serving until his death, May 19, 1920. 

Judge Nathan Green, Junior, after having taught as a pro- 
fessor in the Law School for more than sixty years, died on February 
17, 1919. He was succeeded by Judge Edward E. Beard, who served 
until his death, June 18, 1924. 

In July, 1920, W. R. Chambers was selected as the successor of 
Dr. Martin, and in October, 1923, Hon. Albert Williams was 
selected as a professor of law. In 1925, Judge Williams was elevated 
to the bench, but still retains his connection with the school. In the 
same year Dr. Kenneth Faxon was selected as a professor of law. 

This is among the oldest law schools of the South, and its suc- 
cess from the beginning has been unparalleled by any other similar 
institution. Thousands of young men have here received instruc- 
tion in the law. They are to be found in every section of the coun- 
try and in every honorable station for which professional training 
fits them. Some have reached the bench of the "greatest court on 
earth," the Supreme Court of the United States, and many are or 
have been Chief Executives of States and members of both houses 
of the United States Congress. Indeed, wherever found, in public 
or private station, on the bench or at the bar, their successful careers, 
attributable in some degree, to the systematic training received 
here, are giving prestige to their Alma Mater. 

No law school in the country within the first half century of its 
existence has furnished the profession a more honorable and worthy 
body of graduates than has this school, and it is with commendable 
and natural pride that the institution now points to the record of 
these distinguished sons. 

W^OMEN ARE ADMITTED to the samc classes with men as students. 
The course, being thoroughly practical, prepares the student either 
to practice law, or to conduct other business according to law. 

PLAN OF INSTRUCTION 

It is only by exercising the energies of his own mind that a stu- 
dent can qualify himself for the bar. Any plan which would propose 
to make a lawyer of him without his doing the hard work for him- 
self would be idle and visionary. The virtue of any plan of instruc- 
tion must consist of two things: 

1. That it cause the student to work, or, in other words, to 
study diligently. 

To accomplish this the student is given a portion of the text as 



Cumberland University Law School 5 

a lesson every day, on which he is examined the next day. He is 
required to answer in the presence of the whole class, questions upon 
the lessons thus assigned. If he has any spirit in him, or pride of 
character, this will insure the closest application of which he is 
capable. Neither the old plan of studying in a lawyer's office nor 
the old law-school plan of teaching by lectures has anything in it 
to secure application. The student is brought to no daily examina- 
tion to test his proficiency. There is not the presence of a large 
class in which he has to take rank, either high or low. All that is 
calculated to stimulate him to constant, laborious application, is 
wanting in both these plans. We suppose no young man would from 
choice adopt the office plan as the best mode of acquiring a knowl- 
edge of law, and yet the law-school lecture system is no better. The 
law is in the text-book. The professor can no more make the law 
than the student himself. Every subject upon which a lecture could 
be given has been exhausted by the ablest professors and printed in 
books after the most careful revision by the authors. The faculty 
regard it as an imposition on students and as presumptuous on 
their part to pretend that they could improve upon the standard 
text writers who have given to the public, in printed form and 
acceptable to all, lectures on every branch of the law. It is better 
for the student to occupy his time in learning, with assistance, what 
others have written, than in learning from anything we could write. 
If this mode of teaching is more difficult to the professor, it is much 
more profitable to the student. 

2. The plan should not only make a student work, but it ought 
so to guide and direct him as to make him work to the greatest 
advantage. 

A man may work very hard, but still so unwisely that he will 
accomplish little. It is equally so with the farmer, the mechanic, 
and the law student. The student ought to have such a course of 
study assigned to him, and be conducted through it in such a way, 
that he will understand at the end of his course the greatest amount 
of pure, living American law, and will know best how to apply it 
in practice. 

The duty of the professor in this school is to conduct the daily 
examination of students upon the lessons assigned them; to direct 
their minds to what is most important in the textbooks; to teach 
them what is and what is not settled; to correct the errors into which 
they may fall; to dispel the darkness that hangs upon many pas- 
sages. This is necessary every day and at every step of their 
progress. 



6 Cumberland University Law School 

Moot Courts 

The law is a vast science, and a very difficult one; and the stu- 
dent needs every possible facility to enable him, by the most arduous 
labor, to comprehend its leading elementary principles. But this 
is not all he has to do. He has to learn how to apply these principles 
in practice. This is the art of his profession, and he can only learn 
it by practice. It is as necessary a preparation for assuming the 
responsibilities of a lawyer as the learning of the science. If he 
learns it at the bar, it is at the expense of his client; if he learns it 
in the school, it is at his own expense. 

The advantage of the Moot Court System is that it not only 
imbues a student with the elementary principles of law involved in 
his cases, but also with a knowledge of the law of remedies. It 
trains him also in the discussion of facts, and to the exercise of that 
faculty which is so important in real practice. 

Practice in Moot Court forms a part of the plan of instruction. 
Every student is required to bring suits in the forms adapted to 
all our courts, and to conduct them to final hearing. The students 
act as attorneys, jurors, clerks and sheriffs. 



THE REGULAR ONE YEAR COURSE OF STUDY 

This has been selected with care from the best works of the best 
American authors. It begins with the rudiments, and extends to 
every department of law and equity which may be of any practical 
benefit in this country, and is designed to prepare the student for 
an immediate entrance upon the active duties of his profession. 

It covers about ten thousand pages of living law, and is as com- 
prehensive as some courses requiring two years' study in other law 
schools. The period which we allow for its completion might be 
extended, at additional expense of time and money to the students; 
but we know from long experience that, with the assistance and 
under the direction of the Faculty, it can be thoroughly accom- 
plished in nine months, and that by requiring this to be done we 
prepare young men to receive a license to practice, and enable them 
in the shortest time, and at the least expense, to begin the work of 
life. 

From the vast variety of legal topics, the law of which is taught 
in this course, the following may be mentioned: 

Husband and Wije^ Marriage and Divorce^ Parent and Child^ 
Guardian and Wardy Master and Servant^ Pleading and Practice in 
Courts of LaWy Pleading and Practice in Courts oj Equity , Principal

The above enumeration shows also the order in which the 
course is pursued. 

The right to substitute other text books for any of the above 
texts is reserved. 

Anticipating a very frequent inquiry, the retail price of each 
book is here given, to wit: 

Prices 

History of a Lawsuit % 7. SO

It is greatly to the advantage of the student to secure the latest 
edition of each of these books. The fifth edition of the Lawsuit is 
essential, and nothing older than the sixth edition of Parsons* 
Contracts can be used. 



8 Cumberland University Law School 

The books for the entire course may be bought in Lebanon at 
the prices stated above, or, if the student should prefer not to pur- 
chase, most of the books for either class can be rented. 

It must be remembered that the books used in this school are 
the regular textbooks of the profession, and will always be needed 
in practice, and, when once bought, will last a lifetime. 

Not a Lecture School 

Remember, this is not a lecture school. The law of the textbook 
is assigned as a lesson to the student, and actually read by him, 
and he is exajnined daily in the classroom on what he has read. 

No Correspondence Course 

No correspondence course is offered, nor will credit be given for 
such work done elsewhere. 

Time Required 

Each class (Junior or Senior) requires a period of 18 weeks, or 
one semester. The student, on entering the Junior Class, studies 
the books of that class for one semester of 18 weeks and then, pass- 
ing to the Senior Class, studies the books of that class for another 
semester of 18 weeks. Thus is completed the entire course of 36 
weeks, or one scholastic year. 

When the Terms Begin 

The next terms will begin the second Monday in September, 
1928, and the fourth Monday in January, 1929. There are both 
Junior and Senior classes beginning with each term, and students 
may enter at the opening of either term. There is a graduating class 
at the close of each term, one in January, the other in June. 

Requirements for Admission 

The applicant for admission to the Law School should forward 
his high school and college credits to the Registrar of Cumberland 
University, Lebanon, Tennessee, at least one month before the be- 
ginning of the semester he expects to enter. 

No student will be enrolled or allowed the privileges of the class- 
room until he has paid in full the tuition and other fees of the par- 
ticular class which he desires to enter. Partial payments will not 
be accepted. Students should come prepared to comply with this 
rule. 



Cumberland University Law School 9 

No one will be admitted to the Senior Class with a view to grad- 
uation except such as have satisfactorily completed the Junior 
course here. 

Students who do not intend to graduate may enter at any time, 
and in either class. 

Examinations 

There are no entrance examinations, but, in addition to the 
daily recitarion in the classroom, the student is required to pass a 
written examination upon each book on its completion; and from 
his grading on such examinations, together with his standing at 
class recitation, and his earnestness and fidelity in prosecuting his 
studies, the Faculty determine his fitness for graduation. Absence 
from recitations or disorderly conduct will lower the grade. An 
assembly of the students of the University is held weekly, and law 
students along with all others are expected to attend. 

For late examination a fee of ^1.00 will be charged. 

A record of grades and the absences of all Law students is kept 
in the office of the Registrar of the University in Memorial Hall. 

When to Enter 

It is desirable that students should enter on the first day of each 
term. A degree will not be conferred on any student entering after 
October 1, until he shall have made up the lost time during a sub- 
sequent school year. 

Results 

A graduate of the Cumberland Law School has had the benefit 
of a year's reading of solid law, and the experience of a year's prac- 
tice in the Moot Court. As a result, he is well grounded in a knowl- 
edge of legal principles; how to prepare his case for trial, how to 
try it, how to prepare a brief, how to deliver an argument on the 
facts and on the law. The very thorough and practical manner of 
teaching law in this Law School insures such results to every earnest 
young man who passes through its course and receives its diploma. 

Diploma and License 

A diploma conferring the degree, Bachelor of Laws, will be 
given all graduates of the school. But to become a graduate, the 
student must satisfactorily accomplish the entire course prescribed, 
by study and recitation here, in the regular order, and under the 



10 Cumberland University Law School 

immediate direction of the Faculty. No exception to this rule will 
be allowed. Neither previous reading, privately nor in other schools, 
nor reading here, in advance of the progress of the class, by doubling, 
shall in any wise excuse compliance with this requirement. The 
entire course must be completed here. 

By order of the Trustees of the University, diplomas are to be 
awarded to those students only who are present on graduation day, 
providential causes alone excusing absence. 

To obtain a license in Tennessee to practice law, all applicants 
must pass an examination before the State Board of Law Examiners. 
The course of study prescribed here, if accomplished under the di- 
rection of the Faculty, prepares the young man, in the shortest 
time possible and at the least expense, for that examination. 

Students* Life and Conduct 

This institution will not grant a degree to any student whose 
conduct while here does not warrant the Faculty in believing him 
to be of good moral character. 

Expenses 

Tuition fee for term of five months (in advance ) ^100.00 

University fee (in advance), per term 10.00 

Student body fee 10.00 

Library fee (in advance), per term 12.50 

Diploma fee (for Seniors) 5.00 

The College Dormitoryf 

The price of board in the college dormitories will be ^157.50 for 
the school year, one-half of this amount to be paid at the beginning 
of each of the two terms. 

Law students may secure rooms and board in the dormitory 
under the same rules and regulations applicable to Academic stu- 
dents. Those desiring to reserve room at the dormitory should 
send a deposit of ^5.00, in advance, making check payable to 
Cumberland University. Students rooming elsewhere may board 
at the dormitory. 

Those coming in after the opening of the term, those who leave 
before the close of the term, and those who elect to do so, will pay 
by the calendar month, at the rate of ^20.00 per month, in advance. 

tAcademic students have first choice in dormitory space. What is not used can 
be had by law students. 



Cumberland University Law School 11 

Those not rooming in the dormitories may obtain their meals 
there by paying 50 cents per calendar month extra. There will be 
no deduction for Christmas holidays. Board in the dormitories 
during the Christmas holidays will be 25 cents per day extra. 

There will be no deduction for table board except for continuous 
absence of two weeks. 

Estimate of Expense 

The following table in two columns exhibits a reasonable esti- 
mate of all necessary expenses: 

JUNIOR SENIOR 

Tuition 5100.00 5100.00 

University fee 10.00 10.00 

Library fee 12.50 12.50 

Student body fee 10.00 

Rent of books 13.50 12.50 

Diploma fee 5.00 

Board, in advance, per semester 78.75 78.75 

Room rent, in advance, per semester 42.50 42.50 

Estimated total S267.25 5261.25 

The room rent, which includes the cost of fuel and lights, is 
payable strictly in advance for the semester. The charge for a double 
room is $42.50 per semester for each student. Each student is re- 
quired to sign a regular lease for his room. 

Electric light will be furnished to the extent of sixty watts in 
a single room, or two forty watts lights in a double room. Lights 
in excess of this amount of current must be arranged at the office 
and paid for by the students. 

Students in the dormitory must furnish their own toilet articles, 
electric lamps and bulbs, four single sheets for 3x6-foot beds, one 
pillow, two pillow cases, and necessary blankets; also table napkins. 

Light Housekeeping 

Students expecting to do light housekeeping should bring their 
pillows, bed-clothes, rugs and table linen, and should not bring dogs. 
Either rooms or small houses can be leased. 

Location 

Lebanon is one of the oldest towns in Middle Tennessee, and 
celebrated its centennial in 1902. It has been an educational center 
throughout its history, and now has a population of about 6,000. 
The University is the chief enterprise of the town, and as a result, 
the citizens are deeply interested in its prosperity. They accord to 
the student a hearty welcome. 



12 Cumberland University Law School 

Library 

A large and valuable law library for the use of law students is 
open every day in the week, Sundays excepted. It is located in the 
law building in a comfortably furnished room, well lighted and 
heated. It contains over 6,000 volumes. Special mention may be 
made of the National Reporter and Digest Systems, Corpus Juris, 
Ruling Case Law, L. R. A., both original and new series, American 
Law Reports, Federal Cases, United States Reports, American 
Reports, American Decisions, American State Reports, English 
Ruhng Cases, and British Ruling Cases; besides a great collection 
of other standard law books. 

The library is kept up to date by the constant addition of new 
books as published. All of the published opinions of the courts of 
last resort of all the states of the United States during the last 
thirty-five years, together with the opinions of all the inferior Fed- 
eral Courts and the intermediate Appellate Courts of the State of 
New York, are found in the library. We also have the statutes of 
the 48 States. 

Self Support 

Lebanon being a town of only about 6,000 population, there is 
but little opportunity for one to work his way through the law 
school. A few obtain positions after arrival, but one should not 
come depending upon doing so. 

Directions for New Students 

New law students are advised, on their arrival in Lebanon, to 
inquire for Memorial Hall, where full information and advice will 
be given, and where they will matriculate. 

SUMMER COURSE 

There will be a summer course taught during the vacation of 
1929, continuing eight weeks. This course will cover the law of 
Banks and Banking, and the General Laws of Business, and will be 
found of great benefit to those beginning the study of law, as it will 
be an addition to the regular course, and will enable the student 
to spend the summer pleasantly and profitably. 

This course is designed to benefit especially five classes of 
students: 

1st. Those desiring to review. 

2nd. Those desiring to prepare to take a regular course in law. 

3rd. Those desiring to obtain a knowledge of law for use in bus- 
iness other than the practice of law. 



Cumberland University Law School 13 

4th. Those desiring to obtain a knowledge of law as part of a 
liberal education. 

5th. Teachers who have time to study law only during the 
summer. 

The summer course is especially valuable to the beginner as an 
experiment to enable him to determine whether to follow the law 
as a profession. If he decides not to be a lawyer, he may drop the 
law at the end of eight weeks, with a valuable fund of legal informa- 
tion and with the loss of but little time and money; otherwise, he 
can proceed to take the regular course. 

Tuition for summer course $40.00 

University fee 5.00 

The summer course will begin the second Monday in June, and 
continue eight weeks. It should be of especial interest to teachers, 
as it can be taken by them without interfering with their professional 
labors, and to bankers and bank employees, who may take the course 
in the summer, when their duties are least confining.

HONOR ROLL 



With a view to indicating to some extent the influence of the 
Law School upon the country, it has been thought proper to give a 
list of some of the more prominent men who received their legal 
education here. The names here inserted are only a partial list. 

Of about 4,500 graduates, and many more who took part of the 
course, hundreds have distinguished themselves at the bar and 
otherwise, whose names, for want of space, cannot be given in this 
issue. 

The Faculty will thank all our alumni who will suggest names to 
be added to this roll hereafter. 

William B. Bate, U. S. Senator, Tennessee. 
Joseph W. Bailey, U. S. Senator, Texas.
